*******************************

We had a MicroBurst come through town Saturday night 2/25/2017 at around 5PM. Many trees came down and multiple transformers blew up. Route 32 in Bloomington was closed in two spots until Sunday afternoon. Pretty much all of the Village, Bloomington, and Tillson were out of power until Sunday. Main Street was still blocked off Sunday due to the tree that came down across from the firehouse as shown below:

No U-Turns

Attention vehicles traveling on Main Street Rosendale. Please do not make U-turns in the firehouse parking lot. The amount of vehicles making U-turns in the firehouse parking lot has steadily increased causing damage to the parking lot. Damage to the parking lot only leads to expensive repairs which we are trying to avoid. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
